      I've already seen this player sometimes leads top pair and almost always 2nd pair PP's into the preflop raiser. The problem here is that I have the best 2nd pair PP. He can easily be also leading here with diamonds and I have no redraw after the turn comes so I decide to just fold though I think theres a good chance he's still leading 99/88/77 with 1 diamond here. As a rule, how do you react to habitual donk betters on these kinds of boards? Should I raise/fold on the flop?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with T:heart: , T:club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.20) J:diamond: , 4:heart: , 3:diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.6, BB folds, Hero calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.40) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.2, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $3.60

      Hello Meemawuk,

      But what about him donking into multiway pot? Does he that also? If yes, then it could be doable, but otherwise I'd just fold it on flop being in multiway pot, to avoid any further mistakes. For example T of :diamond: comes or something similar.

      Best regards.
